Lott’s Comments on Thurmond

It’s one thing (although tacky) to get a so-called Marilyn Monroe look-alike to sing happy birthday to Thurmond, and it is another for Lott to say that it would have been better for the country to have Thurmond elected as president in 1948. Lott should remember (as Kristol says) that this is the party of Lincoln and while we are glad that Southerners have joined it, it should be clear to all of them that they joined us and not vice versa.
It is shocking, is it not, how foolish and thoughtless some Republican politicians can be?

Thanks for calling this to my attention.
My real view is that you true Republicans should make more of this.
This remark is not really an aberration
for Lott, and he needs to be removed from the Senate leadership. Peter Lawler
